a Old Times.??
[Here is an exquisite poom, which appeared in
the Chicago Journal, and is probably from the
pen of B. F. Tayhr :]
There's a beauteous song on tho slumbrous air,
That drifis through the valley of dreams :
It comes from a clime where the roses were,
And a tuneful heart and bright brown hair,
That wavea in the morning beams.
Soft eyes of azure and eyes of brown,
And snow-white foreheads are there;
A glimmering Cross and a glittering Crown,
A thorny bed and a couch of down,
Lost hope* ?nd leaflots of prayer.
A breath of Sj ring in the breezy woods,
Sweet waf:s from thc quivering pines
Biue violet e\ es beneath green hoods,
A bubble of brooklets, a scent of buds,
Bird^warblers and clambering vines.
A rosy wreath and dimpled hand ;
A ring and a slighted vow
Three golden links of a broken band,
A tiny track on thc snow-white saud,
A tear and a sinless brow.
There's a tincture of grief in thc beautiful song
That sobs on the slumbrous air,
And loneliness felt io tho festive tbroug,
Siuks down on the soul as it trembles along
F rois a clime where the roses nero.
We heard it first at the dawn of day, .
And it mingled with mutin chimo,
But years have distanced the beautiful lay,
And its melody fiowcth from far away,
And we call it now Old Timea.
A MODEL CORRESPONDENT.-A pub
lisher of a paper made arrangements with
ti mau to furnish him with news items
from that loca'ity. The result of the ar
rangement ?rail as follows, and was rather
startling to the editor :

THE gas is reported to be so bad in a
country town, that thc man who puis it
out has to take a lantern to lind the posts.
A lady just arrived in Washington;
espied the dome of the capitol, and in
quired if it were the gas-works. " Yes,"
said a bystander, for the nation."
A countryman, who was once charged
with ten gallons of whiskey, which a pub
lican had put into an eight-gallon keg,
said he didn't mind the money so much
as he did the strain on the keg.
ONE night at the theatre a gentleman
felt the pressure of two feminine feet upon
his patent leathers. At first the sensa
tion was delightful, lt made inexpressi
bly delicious thrills pass through his bo
dy ; but these sensations wore away and
thc pressure began to feel the least bit
" Madam !" he gently suggested, "you
are standing on my feet."
" Your feet sir !"
" Yes, madam."
" Goodness! I beg your pardon, sir, 1

-but you covered them madam !"
Or.n Daddy Rumsey was a conscien
tious man, fond of his Bible and his bit
ters. He was summoned as a witness
before our County Court. On entering
the hotel he stepped up to the bar, called
for a little tanzy whiskey, poured out a
tumbler nearly full, and proceeded to get
outside of it, which he did with entire
success. The usual sixpence was laid on
the counter ir. payment. Landlord hand
ed back three cents.
" What !" said Rumsey, " don't you
charge but three cents ?"
" Not where I sell at wholesale," was
The old man shoved back the change
and said : " Well, if it's as cheap as that
you take the three cents and I'll take
some more !"
AT last we have it on irrefragable tes
timony, from Ogdensburgh, that old
Grimes's pulse has finally ceased to beat.
A few mornings since, when the thermom
eter was nearly played out, a ragged little
beggar stopped at the door of Judge
J-'sand plaintively suggested victuals.
As the benevolent lady of the house was
emptying a few into his basket she asked :
" What is your name, my son ?"
" My name is Grimes."
" Is your father living?"
" Yes, marin."
" I thought 1 Old Grimes' was dead
That was my grandpa /"

A Philadelphia gentleman of festive
tastes, who takes a "fair shako" at all
the obtainable pleasures of the town, last
weeli assisted at a heavy dinner, took
much potable, and did not leave for home
until cver-so-raany o'clock. On reaching
his doorsteps and fishing up his night
key, he became satisfied that he was es
sentially convivialized, and not precisely
in that condition which a good husband
should be in to meet a good wife. Cau
tiously entering the hall he stopped, lis
tened a moment, heard no noise, and con
gratulated himself that the family were
asleep. Quietly he took off over-coat,
drew off boot??, turned off hall light, slow
ly ascended stairs to family bedroom,
hesitated at door, believed he was reason
ably right, stealthily entered, found gas
. turned low, wife apparently asleep, thought
she mas asleep, sat down, listened again,
no stir ; began to undress : got cont, vest,
pants, drawers, stockings all safely off;
was journeying carefully toward couch
when wife of bosom quietly asked :
" Coming to bed, dear ?"
" Yes, love."
w Well, dear, hadn't you better lake of I.

steal enny thing that ain't tied down.
They are fond ov meat vittles, and arc

a fine bird tew hunt, but a hard one tew

They are no songstirs, although they
hav a good voice to cultivate, but what
they do sing they seem to understand

The crow is a tuff bird, and kan stand

A belle from the roar part of one of
the upper Districts, was invited by her
city cousins to make them a visit during
last winter's holidays, and promised that
it should be made as lively and ?olly as
possible, lt was the good creature'.- first

could tire down any of your city damsels

country lass along. Great was her dc

THE Tennessee Legislature was'in ses
sion when Fort Donelson (ell, leaving the
Federals free to occupy Nashville. Hear
ing a great stir in the Governor's office
below, a committee was sent to sec what
was going on. They found his Excellen

Ile handed the committee a dispatch an
nouncing the fall. When the committee
returned Mr. W. was in thc chair, and
just on the point of adjourning. Ad
dressing the House, he said : " And now,
gentlemen, God will take care of us, and

A member from East Tennessee, who

A few years ago, in a village in Ches
ter County, Pennsylvania, the Methodists
and Presbyterians each built a church at
about the same time. Soon a rivalry
arose between them, especially nmOri"
the juvenile portion of the congregations.
On one occasion the Methodist party got
the best of an argument in this way :
"Ah ! I guess we beat you now."

Gymnastics for Women.
The utility of gymnastic exercises will j
be questioned only by those who are not !
aware that thc health and vigor (if all i
bodily organs depend on thc proportioned j
exercises ot* each. They insure in par
ticular the development of all the loco
motive organs, and they prevent or cor
rect thc deformities to which these organs
are liable; They are best calculated to
produce strength and activity, and to be
stow invariable health. They at the same
time confer beauty of form, and they con
tribute to impartan elegant air and grace
Multitudes of ladies of the present
day are suffering from neuralgia, head
ache and dyspepsy on account of their
failure to take needful exercise. Prior
to the opening of the gymnasium in this
town it was difficult to find a remedy for
this failure. Ladies did not obtain the
requisite amount of exercise, because the
range of exercise possible to them was
extremely limited. Ruskin, when di*
scribing the kind of education which
would fit women for the very high and
influential position' he is anxious they
should occupy, .?poke as follows:
The first of our duties to her-no
thoughtful person doubts this-is to sc
cure for her such physical training and
exercise as may confirm her health and
"perfect her beauty, the highest refinement
of that beauty being unattainable without,
splendor of activity and of delicate
strength. That kind ut" exercise should
be first practiced which calls into action
those parts of the system most defective
in their development.
As the only exercise of most persons
is ordinary walking, which, alone, is quite
insufficient to expand the chest-abnor
mally small-ill fbrmed chests are almost
the rule ; and diseases of the lungs an
the most fatal affections of (his country.
Now, although it would not be correct to
place these lust facts always in the rela
tion of cause and effect, still lhere is no
doubt that they are very frequently thus
related, and it is certain' that tubercular
disease would very inuchdccrease.it' only
some pains. were taken" to exercise the
lungs, and provide for their free action,
by strengthening the muscles of respira
tion and expanding the chamber in which
they work.-Liverpool Courier.

" More than building th o wy mansion,
More than dress or lino :irruy,
M. re than domes or lofty steeples,
Moro than station, power and sway,
Make your home hoth neat and tasteful,

Whore each heart shall rest, contented,
Grateful for each beauty there."
"Show me the house he lives in, and 1
will tell you the character of the man,"
is a saying embodying much truth but
which too few. especially among our
American farmers, appear to comprehend.
A mean house as surely exerts a debasing
influence upon the miuds of its inmates,
and a pleasant, attractive house au enno
bling influence, as a frown depresses or a
smile lightens the spirit of childhood.
lu the planning and construction of a
house, while becoming reference should
be had to .utward attractiveness and for
the exercise of hospitality-from which
wc derive many of our choicest pleasures
-the chief aim should be to make a
home for the family, and not to gratify a
false pride or the public eye. lt is not
the sum invested in a dwelling, but Ute
neatness, taste and conveniences winch it
embodies and its adaptation to the cir
cumstances and wants of its owner that
constitute its true harmony and beiuty.
The surroundings of the house should
be characterized with like neatness and
taste. Trees, shrubs, hedges, vines and
Howers, abounding with strips of refresh
ing green-all these arc essential. They
make any home more attractive and love
ly, and cause sentiments of love and
beauty to sprout in thc heart, like the
leaves and buds themselves. How few
"A thing of beauty is a joy fort vir,"
or stop to consider what a powerful asso
ciation lies hidden in every simple but
familiar object, like a bush, a tree, a rus
tic ?cat or vase, a bit uf grass or a border
of flowers. They are objects which hold
us almost as steadily and strongly to
home as wife and children, to whom th**}
are closely allied.

is wealth of beauty, comfort; and happi
ness. The. children in their daily life
exemplify the beautiful thought, that

WOMEN AND DHESS.-Alphonse Karr
writes of the ladies less poetically than
Michele! ; both seem lo understand llie
s>\\ pretty well, but their experkncc may
have been diff?rent. Karr says: " In a
woman's life, everything loads to a new
dress; every circumstance is marked by
a new dress, and the dress is ihe most
important part. A p'irl is ?oing to be
married-a dress. Fura moment her
heart is filled with love, thought.s of an
entirely new existence, and of H long sepn
rati m from her parents; Everything
disappears before the fdl absorbing ques
tion of the wedding dress. A relatiou
dies. The grief of thc ladies is violent ;
but it is soon checked, for ihe mourning
has to be thought of. What are people
wearing? What is tho most fashionable
mode of testify i nc one's sorrow? [tia
necessary to go to the linen-draper's, to
ihe dress maker's, to the milliner's, and
in a little while they are so thoroughly
occupied that there is quite an end to la
mentations, unless, however, the dress do
not happen tn fit, or ihn bonnet to-bi? too
much or too little offifhe head. But if
the dress is made of some new material, j
if thc bonnet is becoming, ihen they ex- :
poriencc an involuntary glow-they are
triumphant., they arc very happy."
in the latter part of ?3C4 a North
Carolina soldier was one day passing a
house in thc country, in which lie heard !V
young lady playing the piano and singing,
Stepping on thc piazza, he paused and
listened. When the damsel had ceased :
her song, he put his head through tho j
open window and said, " If you please, '

Incidents of the War for
There is a certain portion of the war that will
never go into tho regular histories, nor be embo
died in romance or poetry, which is a very real
part of It, and will, if preserved, 'convey to suc
ceeding generations a better idea of the' spirit of
the conflict than many dry reports or careful nar
ratives of events, and this part may be called the
ROS sip, thc fun, the pathos of the war. This il
lustrates the character of the leaders, the humor
of tho soldiers, the devotion of women, the brave
ry of men, the pluck of ocr heroes, the romance
and hardships of the service.
The Valiant and Bravo Hearted, the Picturesque
and Dramatic, the Witty and Marvelous, the
Tender and Pathetic, and the whole Panorama of
the War are here thrillingly portrayed in a mas
terly manner, at once historical and romantic,
rendering it tho most ample, unique, brilliant and
readable book that the wftr has called forth.
Amusement as well as instruction may be fennd
in every page, as graphic detail, brilliant wit,
and authentic history, are skillfully interwoven
